In Photos: Urban Orlando by Ahmed Hashim

"I appreciate people who see another side of Orlando through my lens," says Ahmed Hashim, an Orlando-based photographer documenting Orlando as an evolving urban environment. "I like exploring the walkable areas in town where the locals live, work, eat, and play."

Hashim's work is influenced by the everyday life of people living in their city. "I'm drawn to the human element in urban settings with a focus on mood, expression, colors, geometry, patterns, and dramatic light." You'll usually find him in the diverse neighborhoods and towns that make up the central Orlando area, including Downtown, Winter Park, and College Park, and once in a while even in the tourist areas--"for a different flavor."

That built diversity is reflected in Orlando's photographers. "Orlando is a mixed bag of different genres and flavors. It’s as diverse as its local community." And that variety of lifestyles and cultures is growing more and more evident as locals and visitors continue to search for the "other" or "real" Orlando. "I like how the City of Orlando is trying to define its identity for 'The City Beautiful' and brainstorm about what else it has to offer."
